    Cleaned Puke At A Movie Theater

    I had to clean up other people's puke all the time when I worked at the movie theater. It was pretty gross. Fortunately I naver had to touch it except for the one time someone threw up in a cup and I thought it was filled up with pop. I took the lid off and it was not pop. At the...

    Many a Drunken Pukes.

    Mostly my friends' sick. Needless to say, it's not pleasant. Once, a girl got very pissed (before she even got to my birthday party)(this was my 16th birthday party, so there wasn't supposed to be any alcohol!) and she got sick on my sister's brand new bed throw. Guess who had to...

    It's Part of the Job Description

    I'm a mom so I've cleaned up someone else's puke a few times.  I was so glad when the kids finally got to the point where they could feel the nausea coming on.  Then they would almost always hit the toilet or a bucket I made them keep close at hand.

    One Should Experience All of Life

    Yes, I've cleaned up another person's puke.  What I found out by doing so is that it provides a very good indication of what the person has been eating and/or drinking recently.  In this respect it resembles archeology, except that the data is more recent and easier to...

    The Worst Part of Motherhood

    Cleaning puke is worse than cleaning your kid's diarrhea, even.  Cleaning puke is so awful, because it's hard to clean, and there's so much of it, and somehow, it gets my gag reflex worse than stinky baby doo-doo or anything else kids get into.
